This report summarizes findings and implementations of probe vehicle data collection based on Bluetooth MAC address matching technology. Probe vehicle travel time data are studied in the following field deployment case studies: analysis of traffic characteristics on key routes during a special event (the Brickyard 400 race in Indianapolis, IN); assessment of delay to motorists during road construction; assessment of motorist compliance with work zone speed limits with and without heavy police enforcement; analysis of route choice during road construction in northwestern Indiana; and evaluation of winter operations on a signalized arterial. In addition to these case studies, the data collection equipment infrastructure was used to collect data for several other concurrent projects that focused on measuring arterial travel time. A discussion of the results from those studies is also provided. In addition to case implementation summaries, Appendixes provide recommendations for sensor deployment height and the construction of efficient SQL queries.
